TIGERS WIN EPIC FINAL
Amidst the electric atmosphere of a 44,000 crowd, tightly packed into the daunting French stadium, Leicester Tigers defeated Stade Francaise in a dramatic final.
Austin Healey was the hero of the hour, making the decisive break that set up Leon Lloyd for his second try in the dying minutes of the game. Tim Stimpson's subsequent conversion meant that the French side needed to score a try to win the game but the French side were unable to make that decisive breakthrough.
